GoboLinux


Last Update: 2024-02-02 02:44 UTC


GoboLinux is a modular Linux distribution - it organizes the programs in a new, logical way. Instead of having parts of a program thrown at /usr/bin, other parts at /etc and yet more parts thrown at /usr/share/something/or/another, each program gets its own directory tree, keeping them all neatly separated and allowing the user to see everything that's installed in the system and which files belong to which programs in a simple and obvious way.

Average visitor rating: 4.33/10 from 3 review(s).

For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

One of the worst Linux distro, I think. I tested it using Live USB. Sadly, it was a terrible experience!

- it does not recognize my mouse (a cable one, brand Trust) so I used the notebook touchpad
- it does not recognize my Wi-Fi connection
- User Experience very poor, just a few basic software installed (and... how to install something new? Of course not the best Linux distro, in this way)
- opened window not always easy to find
- firefox 76.0.1 (the latest release is Firefox 100)
- Python not installed!!!
- great use of resources, but there are also other lightweight distro

Just use NixOS or gentoo or slackware instead. It is not good enough to daily use, unless you are planning to contributing to the project itself. If your work isnt related to Gobolinux, then don't bother.

For a more experienced Linux user, this distro may be useful, but I can't recommend this for a beginner.

The standard set of available programs was very limited. Compile is annoying. Don't bother installing this on baremetal on your main machine.

If you want a distro that reinvents the wheel, then you found it!
